I have failed this House, this family. By my duties, the many that will never be known save Erik himself, I protect the House of Gasbjorn. The things I do are only meant so that Gasbjorn may survive and in those duties, I have failed. I have brought grave news to my lord before. I still fear how he will react to this. His daughter. He has already lost his wife and a son, to the Black. Erik can at least rest with the knowledge that we killed as many as we could and we ride to kill the rest.
